Sophie le Rouge 2009
|Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon|
The wines of Iona come from a dramatically unique site in the Cape Winelands.
The vineyards are on a mountain plateau 420 metres above sea level, surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
In a country where cool sites are precious, these vineyards are like gold — the grapes ripening up to two months later than other Cape vineyards and in perfect balance. Iona is South Africa's coolest vineyard site.
